Shanice’s family speaks out about her discovery


The sights and scenes at the home of 15 year old Shanice Jemmott resembled that of a family reunion, as friends and relatives flocked the home in support of the family.


Shanice, a resident of Clarke Hall Layou, disappeared without a trace on February 17th, 2011. Luckily after 40 days of intense search shanice along with her alleged kidnapper Webster Edmund was discovered by members of the Dominica Police Force.


Shanice’s grandmother Doris Paul who served as the family’s pillar of strength during the past 40 days, says the entire family is overcome by joy.


Mrs. Paul condemned the actions of the persons who are believed to have assisted Webster Edmund in the execution of what she describes to be an ‘outrageous abduction.’


Having noticed the miserable condition in which Shanice was found, Mrs. Paul says she feared that if the police had not found her granddaughter at the time that they did, she would have died of misery.


A tearful Doris Paul broke down in tears of joy as she recalled that very emotional moment when she first held Shanice in her arms moments after her discovery.


One of the many residents from Layou who gathered in Clarke Hall, Layou in support of the family also expressed relief.


Dora Bastien, a resident of Wall House travelled all the way from Wall House to Layou to show her support to the family.
